EARLY SPRING FERTILIZER (30-10-0) An alternative to IFA's step 1. Apply in early spring at 4-6 week intervals for best results. Do not apply when temperatures are consistently over 90 degrees. Apply to dry grass and then water in. (IFA)
NEW LAWN STARTER (9-13-7) Designed to help grass seed and sod develop roots and mature stems before rapid growth begins. Allows sod to get established. Can be applied with grass seed or immediately after seed is sown. (Fertilome)
AMMONIUM SULFATE (20-0-0) Provides a quick release of nitrogen. It produces a rapid response in grass color and growth. Tends to be less expensive than other fertilizers. (IFA)
UREA (46-0-0) Contains 46% nitrogen. An excellent source of nitrogen for a quick green-up on lawns. Do not apply when temperatures are consistently over 90 degrees (IFA)
SULFUR COATED UREA (39-0-0-12S) Sulfur coating the urea shows the release of the nitrogen. This reduces the chance of a nitrogen burn. The sulfur aids in lowering the PH and helps utilize nutrients in the soil.
